Konica Minolta adds hybrid option to AccurioLabel presses

Konica Minolta announced the launch of a new optional Flexo Printing Unit for its AccurioLabel presses to enable inline production of white and other colours.

Developed with Konica Minolta’s manufacturing partner in Europe, Danish company GrafiskMaskinfabrik A/S (GM), the Flexo Printing Unit can be retrofitted to the Konica Minolta original AccurioLabel 190 or AccurioLabel 230.

The AccurioLabelFlexo Printing Unit uses standard flexo inks. In combination with the already available overprint sensor kit, it provides perfectly registered inline overprinting of white or any other colour, which will open doors to a wider range of print applications such as printing on clear substrates.The Flexo Printing Unit comprises an unwinder, web guide, a complete flexo printing station, UV curing system, an output NIP and a touch control panel.

EdoardoCotichini, Team Manager Industrial Printing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, said: “The label printing market is considered as one of the main market segments that will grow in the future. And this year alone, almost half of the narrow web label installations will be digital."

“The introduction of our optional Flexo Printing Unit is a new way of looking at hybrid technology. It’s been driven by market demands and we are looking forward to further growing our market share in labels – a market we only entered five years ago but have now sold over 500 label machines - and industrial print in general. Working closely with our customers in a partnership approach, we will also help them to rethink what’s possible. The march of digital production is unstoppable” added Cotichini.
